Eastern Star Hall
2719 K Street
Built 1928

The Masonic Order had been the domain of males until the year 1850 when Dr. Rob Morris, a Master Mason living in Jackson, Mississippi, set about to devise a ritual for the adoption of females into Masonry. From this originated the Order of the Eastern Star.

The Sacramento Order of the Eastern Star was established in 1879. From 1923 to 1928 five OES chapters in Sacramento planned and raised funds for the Temple which was dedicated on October 16, 1928.

Eastern Star Hall is a polychrome brick and terra cotta building, Romanesque Revival in style with Moorish or Byzantine elements. It is located on the edge of downtown Sacramento in a mixed residential and commercial neighborhood. Sutter's Fort State Historic Park is across the street.
